Amazing Award Winning Low Budget Film
5 October 2018 | by writemeoneSee all my reviews

When you think of low budget films you usually think that this is going to be low quality as well. This is where The Gaelic King differs from the others. I have watched and reviewed a number of films and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this offering.

The story is Scottish folklore at its best. The acting was also well directed and while some where first time actors they were able to pull off very convincing roles. The young actors were also exceptional showing great emotion and professionalism.

The music score was probably my greatest surprise because I did not expect such an outstanding contribution to the film. It was truly well done and exceptionally well edited.

The only reason it received a 9 was due to the special effects which could have been a bit better. But I'm sure this will prove to be corrected in their next project which I hope will have greater funding than this film had.

If these new film makers can do this well on a low budget just think what they could accomplish if there were afforded more!

Hats off the entire Cast and Crew for this film!
